Doing my hair in the morning is often a chore, especially on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays after an aggressive night of one too many gin martinis and glasses of Veuve at fashion parties.  To get myself ready for work in the morning means grabbing a flat iron or or my sock bun for quick and easy hair styles.  There are only so many buns I can create in my hair.   For quick hair style ideas, I reached out to Vanessa Fernandez of Butterfly Studio Salon to give me three new styles I can do in a jiffy before heading to work.

TOUSLED BUN


For a quick messy/chic look, try using the natural texture of your hair and a texture spray (like Davines For Wizards No. 14 Sea Salt Primer) to create separation.

Flip your head upside down; spray, scrunch, and smooth your hair up, twisting it until it’s in a bun shape.

Secure with a hair tie.

SIDE PART/SMALL PINNED BRAID


This is a great style to get hair out of your face quickly and still look cute.

Using naturally air dried hair, create a deep side part and craft a braid using three small sections of hair and pulling towards the back of your head.

Secure with 2 bobby pins by crossing one over the other.

INSTANT WAVES


Setting hair in 2 braids can create natural waves. With your hair about 15% dry, apply a texture cream (try the Davines Defining Styling Cream) and divide hair into two sections.

Create one braid on each side, allowing both sections to sit for several hours.

Remove braids, flip head over and shake out for beautiful, wavy hair.

Apply a medium-hold hairspray (Davines For Wizards No. 9 Structuring Mist) to keep waves flowing.
